THE MISSIONARY - Mild neophobic with a neophillic candy coating. Not necessarily religious, the missionary usually arrives on a long-term trip: taking a year to teach english in Zimbabwe, for instance. Or agricultural studies in Peru. They don't always have an organizational agenda, for instance, they could be taking a year off from school to backpack the Great Minefields of Somalia, or just a couple weeks to really immerse themselves in the people of Papua New Guinea. But they all have one thing in common: they studied intensely the disadvantages of the poor, uneducated people of that land and are hell-bent on changing their lives for the better, dammit.
Completely naive to the country's unique needs and challenges, Missionaries are tireless about pitching solutions to various problems. Often seen picking up other people's children and wailing about the unjust, subpar conditions, a Missionary will never waste an opportunity to establish rapport with a village or act as a counselor to a family in need by teaching the wives about their rights to an independant living and through heartwarming chats with the husbands about how making the women bow before they eat is considered demeaning in civilized society. And if the locals dont accept the invaluable teachings, it's not really their fault. They can't be expected to understand when they are so lacking in education.
